Clay poultices or wraps to ease your Arthritis

The clay contains silica, iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Thought the clay is not absorbed, the minerals it contains are. There is green, red, yellow and white clay.

Buy the loose powder in larger quantities direct from a supplier as it is more economical this way. Mix with water into a paste, put on painful stiff joints and leave  for approximately 20 to 30 minutes to penetrate the skin. Once the clay has been used, discard afterward. Remove as much of the clay as possible before having a shower – other wise the clay could block the drains.

Once you have covered the painful area/s with the clay, cover with a piece of plastic, then place a small heated pad over the plastic and clay, or a hot water bottle or a grain pillow that is heated in the microwave.

Taking a bath afterward with essential oils and/or Espson salts would would further enhance the treatment. After your bath rest and make sure you drink plenty of warm water with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Sunday would be the ideal time to do this.

Essential oils like clove, lemon, cedar wood, lavender etc
